In 1976, the observance was extended to the entire month of February to provide more time for celebratory programs and activities. There are many websites that offer information on notable African-Americans and their contributions to our society.

Show yourself some love by taking care of your heart. Heart disease, which usually results from blood vessels blocked by cholesterol (arthrosclerosis), is the number one cause of death in the United States. One of the best ways to prevent heart disease is getting regular exercise and eating a heart-healthy diet. A diet low in cholesterol and saturated fat and rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans is your best weapon for preventing heart disease. Here is a delicious recipe that meets these recommendations. Pasta with Spinach, Chickpeas and Raisins Adapted from The Mayo Clinic Ingredients 8 ounces whole wheat pasta (such as rotini or ziti) 2 tablespoons olive oil 4 garlic cloves, crushed 1/2 can (19 ounces) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth 1/2 cup raisins 4 cups fresh spinach, chopped 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese Directions 1. Cook pasta according to package directions and drain. 2. While pasta cooks, heat olive oil in a large skillet. 3. Sauté garlic over medium heat until beginning to brown, about one minute. 4. Add the garbanzo beans and chicken broth; stir until warmed through. 5. Add the raisins and spinach; heat just until spinach is wilted, about three minutes. Don't overcook. 6.
